Terminal Attendant in Bear Cove, Port Hardy
Fun and relaxing with a strong emphasis on safetyI've been hired as a seasonal terminal attendant along with 4 others. We competed for casual positions based on our work performance and availability. If you don't have a good work ethic and don't make yourself available for on-call shifts, you likely won't get a casual position. I worked full time through the Summer with some shifts obtained on call while most are scheduled for an entire month, on the last week of the previous month. The management and staff have been very friendly, helpful, supportive and patient as I've become familiar with my responsibilities. The opportunity for job variation and growth is possible with the right courses and training, especially if you're willing to relocate/transfer. I would definitely recommend working for BCF to anyone who enjoys working with the public and has a flexible schedule.

It was a long time agoShift work, on your feet, in a fast paced, high volume, time sensitive environment. It's much more fun if you make friends there, especially if you're working on the liverboard ships
Casual mate minor in Chemainus, BC
Repetitive work environment with little encouragement for advancement.Not A bad job for a crummy company. Worked 12 years with no opportunity to gain a regular position at my home base. Lack of time off for mediocre wages.
Customer Service and Sales Representative in Victoria, BC
Decent pay, good training Call centre environment is stressful, but even seasonal employees are trained extensively. Pay is well above minimum ($20ish) and raises were offered to seasonals who stayed on past the end of the summer. Long hours and on-call nature of the position made for difficult work-life balance.
Terminal Operator in Vancouver Island, BC
High demand , stressful work culture Company is run by the hr department . On call for all new hire and expectation are unrealistic, no work life balance expected to answer phone and respond at all hours . No pay for being on call and no min hours per month . Pay well below industry standard in most departments. Company and union changed pension plan for the worst with no recourse for some long term employees. Would not recommend this job to anyone
